  1. Featherweight Sewing Table

    by , 10-24-2012 at 11:13 PM
    A good friend of mine gave me a copy of an ad on craigslist for a Featherweight table. I called the lady the next morning and made an appointment to meet her that afternoon.

    It is beautiful! She has moved from a house to living in an apartment with her son and she had it all packed up. She had it wrapped in bubble wrap and a cardboard box built around it. She then stuffed any empty areas with crumpled newspaper. It was very protected.

Maybe a little yellow -but what does that matter - I can assure you that at my picture is very inferior. The colors are beautiful. He knew I would care for it. He actually gave me two. One needs repairs where piecing threads have broken. I promised I would fix it and return to him. We have several family members

  4. Stitch in the Ditch or all over Meander?

    by , 10-24-2012 at 11:21 AM
    Hey everyone,

    I am a new quilter, 21 years old and I'm trying to teach myself how to quilt. I have attached an image of the quilt I am working on (it's a car seat quilt) for my God child that is due this December! Please let me know whether you think I should use a stitch in the ditch technique or an all over stipple stitch. Thanks for your input! It's much appreciated!

  6. Has anyone ever used the creative feet for their sewing machines?

    by , 10-23-2012 at 11:47 AM
    I just received my creative feet in the mail. I purchased the bead and pearls and piping one, the sequin one, the satin edge one and then one that is an accessory for the sequin one. Just wanted to know if anyone has used them before and how they work.

    Remove Lint

    Fabric and thread are a combination that is going to produce lint. Lint can build up in unseen areas of your machine leading to wear and tear that is preventable.

    Open all areas that you can and clean the lint out of the machine. Use the brush that came with your sewing machine

  8. Ribbons at Show

    by , 10-22-2012 at 10:31 AM
    I have been working so feverishly on my UFOs that it feels good to know that after completing 92 so far, that two have taken ribbons at the WSQ Show. The show is a people's choice ribbon award. It is judged by your peers. I have been winning ribbons by judges at juried shows, but to win by judgment of peers, I feel so proud.
